    Abstract: BACKGROUND:
    Research found that low levels of professional confidence and personal comfort among neonatal clinicians regarding palliative care may indicate a lack of competence and hesitancy to offer neonatal palliative care services.

    This study evaluated the factors associated with the confidence and comfort levels of neonatal clinicians providing neonatal palliative care.

    A cross-sectional survey and questionnaire were used to investigate the confidence and comfort levels of neonatal clinicians regarding neonatal palliative care.

    Research subjects included 154 neonatal clinicians. Clinicians' confidence in providing neonatal palliative care was significantly impacted by age, marital status, years of professional experience (p < 0.05), and prior palliative care training. Comfort levels were significantly impacted by educational degree, marital status, and years of working experience. Clinicians with a supportive workplace reported increases in both professional confidence (r = 0.286, p < 0.001) and personal comfort (r = 0.521, p < 0.001).

    Research reveals the importance of neonatal palliative education and suggests further development of interdisciplinary neonatal palliative care teams to improve clinicians' professional confidence and personal comfort.
